Verona teen arrested for alleged property damage in Madison

MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison Police arrested an 18-year-old man early Saturday morning after three people on East Johnson Street reported a possible break-in.

Zachary James Schmidlkofer, of Verona, was arrested on suspicion of criminal property damage and disorderly conduct.  He denied trying to force entry into the building on the 100 block of East Johnson.

Around 1:30 a.m. that day, a 24-year-old woman screamed when she said someone tried to kick in a front door to her apartment building.

According to a police news release, Schmidlkofer broke a window in the door, but then ran away as the woman yelled.

Officers found the man lying under a balcony of a nearby residence who matched a witness description.
